Thank you for the publications.  I wanted to check some of the figures and discussion relative to describing spines on the internal sac.  I’ll give you a shout relative to Coenonycha rufobrunnea from Baja California, Mexico.  Bill and Mary Clark just returned from central Baja with fresh specimens of what I believe are C. rufobrunnea.  The specimens were taken at blacklight along the road to LA Bay during mid-January.


Thank you again for the publications.

Hi Everyone,


I’m looking for three publications that illustrate or discuss structures on the internal sac (specifically spine fields and the basal knob).  I would appreciate Pdf copies of the following papers:


                Boving, A. G.  1942. A classification of larvae and adults of the genus Phyllophaga (Coleoptera:  Scarabaeidae).  Memoirs of the Entomological Society of Washington, no. 2.  96 p. 


                Chapin, E. A.   1932.  Revision of the pleurostict Scarabaeidae of Cuba and the Isle of Pines.  I.  The Melolonthinae.  Annals of the Entomological Society of America 25:173-209.


                Sanderson, M. W.  1939.  A new genus of Scarabaeidae with descriptions and notes on Phyllophaga.  Journal of the Kansas Entomological Society 12(1):1-15.



Thanking you in advance, regards
